Buy a pound of tobacco and 2 boxes of tubes. 22 bucks for 2 cartons. Rolling machine is only 30 bucks and you can even get a packet roller for 5. I'll never pay 14 dollars a pack.

Yikes!

When I smoked, in the 70's, a carton, (20 packs) of Winston, was $7.50 at the military commissary. I doubt if they were more than $11.00 a carton elsewhere.

In my opinion NYC is an experiment. If they can get away with it and the people roll over and accept it then they will try to implement it with the rest of the country. I don't know what New Yorkers think but they seem to shrug and ignore every infringement on their personal liberties.

I have two silver bullets I never use anymore. 6 volt e-cigarette. I have made my own e-liquid and have a tackle box full of shit. I lasted 8 months without smoking but ultimately went back. Atomic Fireball was the only flavor I could get a good throat and lung hit. Well, how long before you get tired of vaping that shit and try to find another only to find them weak as fuck. I have a big box of flavors and 500ml of nicotine left. 8 sets of batteries, a couple of tanks, various jumbo cartomizers, and a pass-through to hook up to my computer. probably 500 bucks worth of shit i never use anymore. They seen this sucker coming.

Re: 14.50 per pack for cigs in NYC
I don't see where the Problem is. Even 14.50 is a Joke its better for you, your environment and your health to STOP smoking at all. ASAP

Nicotine is messing with your brain, and tar is also not very healthy for your lungs.

I once read if you stop smoking before the age of 35 you can minmize the damage done to your body. But the older you get and the more you smoke the more it is like digging your own grave.
And on top of that you sponsor the government with your taxes and the tobacco industry with your money.

Stop now or at least minimize it as good as you can.

Good luck.tomato

I roll my own, it's roughly $10.00 a carton. I'm sure they'll eventually find a way to start taxing that more too. But for now, it's the way to go. I was going to quit a couple of years ago, but when they started the crackdown, I decided to keep smoking out of spite. F*%K THEM!

I found it funny, when I was Christmas shopping for my daughter a billfold, I saw a ton of those old school cigarette cases. The ones with the lighter holder and change purse, haven't seen those in ages, with smoking being so taboo. They're everywhere now, I bought myself one. :)
